In November, 2014, CORAL GUARDIANS went on a network and learning journey to Hawaii. During 10 days, we met with researchers, teachers, students, musicians, community leaders, scientists and volunteers. Many of the meetings were documented on video and will be presented in a documentary that aims to raise awareness about the state of the coral reefs, and what can be done to improve it, among the public and decision-makers in politics and business.
